Here at your SU we know it's been a tremendously difficult year for some students... we're still here and working hard to ensure that every student gets as much support and guidance possible so you can continue to feel comfortable and enjoy your University experience! The UK government have recently allocated funding to Universities across the country to support all students (including EU and International students) that have been financially affected by the impacts Covid-19. UWL has created a process for students to access this funding here.
The Covid-19 Hardship Fund is only available to students that have been significantly impacted financially and can demonstrate the impact it has had on paying for tuition fees, accommodation, living costs etc. Examples of the impact may include:
UWL have asked students to provide supporting evidence in their applications to demonstrate the impact, it’s had on their finances – this can include:
The SU strongly encourages students to speak to our SU Advice Team that can help students complete application forms and advise on the necessary evidence to support applications. You can email email@example.com to request a call with one of our advisors who will contact you within 48 hours. We have also attached a FAQ’s form with some other queries you may have about the process.
In addition to the Covid-19 Hardship Fund, UWL also have a Discretionary Support Fund (DSF), application to this can be found here. Please note this is only available to Home (UK) students.
